Hurricane season has arrived and Lake County Emergency Management officials recently announced all nine of the county’s emergency shelters are now pet-friendly.
“We are aware of how important pets are to many of our citizens, so we are thrilled to have worked with the Lake County Sheriff and the School Board to ensure people can bring their pets with them during emergencies,” said Tommy Carpenter, Manager of Lake County Emergency Management.
“It is important to know that all pets arriving to county shelters will need to be crated and owners must bring their animal’s vaccination records along with food and water", Carpenter pointed out.
Shelter locations include Astatula Elementary, Leesburg Elementary, Lost Lake Elementary, Mascotte Elementary, Round Lake Elementary, Spring Creek Elementary, Treadway Elementary, Umatilla Elementary and The Villages Elementary.
